Spring in Your Step: Sneaker Picks for the Season


Spring in Your Step: Sneaker Picks for the Season

Fresh Versions of Penn's Favorite Footwear

It’s no secret that sneakers are Penn’s most beloved shoe. And why not? They’re God’s gift to college students everywhere: comfortable, easy, and now – with the rise of athleisure – fashionable. But if your Stan Smiths are looking a little worse for wear, it might be time to invest in something new for the upcoming spring season. We’ve rounded up some (non-basic) options that will have you turning heads on Locust.

Go Floral

What screams spring more than a classic floral print? This pair from Jackye contrasts a “dad sneaker” with a delicate, feminine floral.

Go Monochromatic

Make a color statement in monochromatic kicks. Accents like ruffles (we love this pair from Tory Burch) add extra interest and make these a showstopper.

Go Embellished

We saw embellishments all over the runway this season, and now we want them everywhere – including our feet. Try slip-ons in a neutral color (like these from Keds) to elevate your everyday look.

Go Pastel

“Ugly” sneakers and pastels? A match made in streetwear heaven. If you’re a high-fashion junkie, this is the shoe that will bring your look into springtime.

Go Gingham

A pair of Seavees’ signature gingham sneakers is guaranteed to get you complimented in class. Pair them with light wash jeans and a white tee for an effortless look this season.

Go Espadrille

Combinations like these from Vince give you the comfort of a slip on, with the woven motif of an espadrille. They’re an undeniably springy take on your usual slip-on that will pair perfectly with your wardrobe.

Go Spotted

The return of spring marks the return of Dalmatian print. This pair of sneakers from APL offers not only a unique spin on the print (hello, gold), but also great support that can take you from class to Pottruck without missing a beat.
